Universal Provision

All students at Waldegrave School have a universal provision for their wellbeing. This means that all students are trying to work towards being effective self-managers of their own wellbeing.

Supporting each other

Form tutors

Student support at Waldegrave School begins with the form tutors who provide the all-important daily contact with students. They monitor attendance, punctuality and behaviour and generally help to ensure that students are happy, safe and able to achieve. They also provide the first point of contact for parents. 

Heads of Year

The next layer of support is provided by the Heads of Year. They oversee each of the year groups and work closely with form tutors and student support officers. Phase leaders focus on ensuring individual academic attainment through rigorous tracking of student behaviour, attendance and progress and the implementation of individualised study support programmes. Phase leaders also present weekly assemblies to provide wellbeing information and guidance.

Key Stage Hubs

The Key Stage Hubs are an additional layer of student wellbeing support. They are highly experienced in dealing with more complex matters of student health, safety, behaviour and wellbeing. They work closely with teachers, students, parents and multi-agency teams. Staff in the Hubs are trained in physical and mental health first aid. 

Head of Key Stage

The Heads of Key Stage are senior leaders who support Heads of Year and the Key Stage Hubs. 

Student voice

We value the contribution that students make to the planning and development of our school and ensure that they are included in the decision making process. Each tutor group elects a representative to share ideas at Student Parliament meetings, to help us ensure that we are not complacent, that we continue to make progress, and that we put student ideas into practice. Additionally, we include students in the interview process when staff join our school, and we invite students to governor meetings to ensure they are able to express their opinions and ideas about their school. Students are also able to volunteer to become peer mentors, mental health ambassadors and prefects.

Parent voice

As part of our universal provision for wellbeing, we ensure that we include parents and carers in this process.  Parents and carers are aware that they can seek advice and support for their children at any time. We ensure that we work in partnership and regularly hold parent information evenings, individual meetings with parents  and special workshops and events, to ensure parents feel part of the school community. We also send out regular information in our weekly Ebulletin.


Equipped for the future

Personal development and citizenship (PDC)

All students have lessons in personal development and citizenship, which equip them with strategies to lead safe and responsible lives. We empower our students to make informed decisions in order to safeguard their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Please click on the link alongside here for more information about our PDC programme.

Restorative approaches

Our well established restorative approach makes us an open and listening school where students are encouraged to reflect on their actions, and the impact of these, on their peers and the wider school community.
